These were so easy that I’ve gathered them in one post for you last-minute givers out there (you know who you are)!
A scented sachet is – just like the salt scrub and shower melts – a “little luxury”. There’s just something so lovely about the idea of opening a drawer or closet and being greeted with a heavenly scent. And this could literally not be easier to execute.
All you need – aside from your lavender, of course – are some simple drawstring bags. I loved these muslin ones that I got at the craft store, but you could use burlap, organza, or – if you’re SUPER crafty – sew your own!
These bags are 3″ x 4″ and each held 5 – 6 tablespoons of lavender flowers.
And the simple syrup? If you can boil water, you can make simple syrup. And if you’ve never tried it before you’re in for a treat. Because it is a sweetener in liquid form, it dissolves perfectly in beverages such as iced tea and lemonade, with no graininess. This lavender-honey version can also be used in cocktails, brushed on cake layers prior to frosting, or to candy fruits.
Poured into a pretty bottle and tied with a ribbon, this makes a “sweet” and unique gift!
adapted from Evermine
1 cup honey
1 cup water
1/2 cup natural cane sugar (can substitute with granulated sugar)
2 tablespoons dried lavender
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil for 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, strain and discard the lavender and refrigerate.
